Feed Your Family For 50 dollars A Week

Starting January 1st, I will attempt to feed our family of four:  2 adults and 2 teenagers for 50 dollars per week for a year.  This equals 2600 dollars for 52 weeks.  Some weeks I may spend more, and some weeks I may spend less, but I will keep a running total of what I spend and may include meals we eat and some recipes.  We do have food in the cupboards, pantry and freezer, but since I will want to keep them stocked, I will just replace what I use and keep what we have rotated.  I may fail at this attempt, but if I don't try then I will fail for sure.


  1. did it happen or not?

  2. Yes it did. The posts under the $50 Weekly Grocery Challenge show what I bought each week if you are interested in looking at them. I take a couple of weeks off in the year when we go on vacation, but the majority of the time I do the $50 challenge.
